The composition to highlight and make the shapes of the lines in the low tide the main subject makes the shot interesting. But while the concept is good the composition needs improvement. The colors on the mountain in the background appear a bit too oversaturated which tells me that this was done to get a punch of color. It does add color but it does not appear natural to my eyes. Generally it is early morning and very late afternoon hours that will give the photographer some wonderfully rich and deep tones - not to mention the potential for a colorful sky if there are clouds at that time. I believe, given the title, that the main focus was the shapes/lines of the low tide. But you have introduced another element that I think is rather distracting and detracts from the image -that is the mountain in the background. Perhaps a change in angle and tighter focus would have made a rather unique composition that moves from average snapshot into a above average shot. I.E. shoot the picture with the camera looking down at a 45 degree angle and tight crop showing the lines with just the reflection of the sky and the mountain to add visual interest & color.

Looks nice. I think it would be better if you captured a little less of the sand and a little more of the sky. After all, it is a nice blue and compliments the red mountains.

Too much saturation here in the red / orange range.

This is nice, but I think I would've LOVED this photo without the hills in the background. The sand and water and reflections alone are beautiful.

Nice angle. I like the way the lines in the sand lead your eye towards the hill. (8)

Love the colours in this and the ripples caused by the tide. I think you took this from the perfect angle.
